Go So-young, Jo Yeo-jung show striking chemistry in Perfect Wife poster
The mysterious new poster for upcoming drama Perfect Wife evokes curiosity with the caption: “A Woman Who Dreams of the Perfect Household.” But who’s the woman—Go So-young (Blue Fish) or Jo Yeo-jung (Babysitter)? Even though they aren’t looking at each other, the body language of both impeccably coiffed women hints at the potential of a strong chemistry.
This ajumma mystery-comedy drama is centered around an ordinary housewife, played by Go So-young, whose name Shim Jae-bok means luck. However, her life has not been filled with the blessing that her parents were probably thinking of when they gave her that name. Her pushover husband, played by Yoon Sang-hyun (Shopping King Louis), can never stand up to his boss at work. This leads to a difficult financial situation where she must also earn money to support the family while still performing all the duties of the household.
In the latest trailer, we see a glimpse of her hectic daily life and fierce ajumma personality as she goes from being fired to suspecting her husband of cheating. After twelve years of working a menial job, she gets the axe, and perhaps it’s indirectly related to Sung Joon’s (Madame Antoine) character, a pretentious lawyer with ambitious dreams of marrying a rich wife, because she accuses him of predicting her dilemma in the trailer. But later she seems more concerned about the appearance of a suspicious woman (Jo Yeo-jung) in her life—well to be more specific, her husband’s life.
According to the drama synopsis, Go So-young and Jo Yeo-jung initially meet because Jo becomes Go’s landlady. She’s the type of wealthy woman who’s beautiful as well as kind. As a considerate gesture, she even refurnishes the entire apartment that Go and her family start living in. But as more strange occurrences between the two ladies happen, their lives becomes intertwined in a mysterious way.
Monday-Tuesday KBS drama Perfect Wife will begin airing next week on February 27.
